I used to use Break Free and then I bought my Remington 870 Marine Magnum. The Break Free slides right off after about a day, the owners manual to the 870 said to use Remington Gun Oil...same thing slides off after about a day. The only thing that stays on is Wilson Combat Grease. The Wilson Combat Grease and Wilson Combat Oil are part of my gun maintenence bag now. I tried Wilson Combat bore cleaner and wasn't very impressed. For cleaning I still use Break Free and let the gun soak overnight.

The Wilson Combat lubes really slick things up on my pistols.

Forgive me for jumping into a thread that's been around awhile (though thankfully has been resurrected recently), but I've got a question regarding grease/lubrication.

I just pruchased an SP2022 and have cleaned it with Break-Free CLP. I assumed that the "CLP" designation essentially meant that the product was an all-in-one solution to, well, cleaning, lubricating and preserving. Hence there'd be no other product I'd need to keep my new polymer Sig operating properly for years to come. Maybe I'm assuming incorrectly? Should I be lubricating the gun with something else?

Not familiar with that grease but if it lubes and stays there and is not so stiff as to slow down slide action it would be good.

Lubing guns is not a mysterious witchcraft. Gun are a machine and the good thing this article showed is that there are a lot of products that work well.Some are more convient than others and some last longer. Unless it is water all will work,just some better than others. They all are better than no grease or oil. I am partial to one brand but I can tell you it is no better or worse than a lot of the stuff listed.Extra cost for "GUN" lube is a waste of good money better put to use buying ammo.
Lube it up with your choice and happy shooting!

Try Amsoil Synthetic Polymeric Off Road grease NIGL #1 sometime. It has an affinity for metal and itself so it stays in place very well. We us it on our Sig and Spriingfield slides and it works equally well in hot and cold weather.

For Oil, I converted over to StrikeHold which I buy from a internet co. out of Jax, FL. called specialtytools.com (wish I could find it local), I have found it to be EXCELLENT for deep lubricant penetration, and pin pointing the spray is easy with the little red spray tube. For grease I have used mostly SuperLube in the silver tube. I got that like 15yrs. ago and just now find I'm going to have to get another tube. I'm glad the OP said where you could get it because I've had it so long I didn't remember where it came from.

I get SuperLube in the tube from my local Harbor Freight.

As an auto technician I've used several different lubes for sevral purposes. As someone stated earlier any lube is better than no lube is true. However all lubes have very specific functions/ purposes, at least thats how its thought of in the automotive industry. I wouldn't use axle grease to assemble an engine and I wouldn't use assembly grease to lube an axle!! Diffrent lubes react differently to temperatures and movements. For use on a firearm any automotive grease is probably fine if you clean your weapon after each use, but if some of these products are left on for an extended period they may harm the bluing. I've seen a multi purpose auto grease get left on a fender for 36 hours at the most and when it was cleaned off the oils in the lube had ate through the clear coat and faded the paint. Maybe that was a fluke or maybe not. Maybe bluing is tougher than auto paint. l don't know but I don't wanna chance it either!! Point is read the labels and do some research on the web if your going to use an automotive lube. Better safe than sorry. Now my personal choice is automotive assembly lube. Its used during engine builds or major internal part changes. Its purpose is to pre lube moving parts during the first start up after repair. The engine parts are dry for oil until it is ran for the first time and oil can be pumped from the oil pan to the rest of the engine. So if this stuff is good enough to protect a dry engine its good enough for my sig.

Has anyone tried froglube I switched over to it last year and it works great in all weather and aii environments .i first used it in Afghanistan while in the army and never looked back.this stuff is in my duck hunting shotguns,pistols,bolt guns and my sig716 that whet to Afghanistan,with zero functioning problems. Also a little bit goes along way so the cost doesn't hurt that bad.

Super Lube and Frog Lube are what I like, depending on the application.
